West Frisian Islands vacation
Each of the five Dutch Wadden islands have their own atmosphere and their own character. These lovely islands are a great place to pay a visit to. The journey by boat is already an adventure. And the islands are beautiful with great nature and deserted beaches. But wait, there is more. The Wadden Sea is ruled by the tide, by sand and water. You can watch wildlife. And when the tide is low you can go mudflat hiking or you can try to visit an uninhabited Island.
Special places and fun things to do
Holiday on the Wadden Island of Texel offers plenty of variety. On one side of the island you have the North Sea coast with sandy beaches, nature and dunes, on the other side you have the 'polders' and the Wadden Sea. There are plenty of activities. Skydiving and catamaran sailing are popular, but you can also watch seals in Ecomare, walk on the beach, discover the Slufter area or enjoy the sun in one of the small villages.
